Join NALP for an Epic Ending to Our First ELEVATE

If you needed one more reason to attend NALP’s new national conference and expo, ELEVATE, you don’t want to miss the closing party on Sept. 20, 2022, as we’ve reserved The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ – Hogsmeade™ at Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park just for you!

You read that right. All night long, you’ll enjoy unlimited access to incredible rides and attractions including Flight of the Hippogriff™, the groundbreaking Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™ and Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure™.

Flight of the Hippogriff™

“It certainly is an opportunity to be in a really fun place,” says Britt Wood, CEO of NALP. “Many times people think of when you go to an amusement park, wouldn’t it be great if nobody else was there and it was just kind of yours? That’s what this is like. It’ll be you and all your closest friends from the landscape and lawn care community hanging out. It’s the opportunity to not wait in lines, but also there will be great food and things to drink. It’ll just be a ton of fun. It’ll be a great way to wrap up your week at Elevate.”

Wood himself is excited about the Flight of the Hippogriff™ where you take a training flight aboard a Hippogriff and swoop past Hagrid’s hut and pumpkin patch. During Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™, you’ll soar above the castle grounds as you join Harry Potter™ and his friends on an unforgettably thrilling adventure.

On Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure™, guests will board magical motorbikes and ascend above the trees, rapidly accelerate through ruins, rush forward – and backward – at speeds up to 50 mph and more as they discover some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.

Not only will you be able to enjoy these attractions, but you can also explore Hogsmeade™ and visit some of the wizarding world’s best-known establishments.

Grab a Butterbeer™ and explore iconic stores such as Honeydukes™, a sweet shop known for selling Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans™ and Cauldron Cakes, and Ollivanders™, where the wand chooses the wizard. 

It’s an entire evening of magic and excitement—and it’s all yours!
